Copper Dinosaurs Making Tracks

Hey everyone, hope you all have had a great weekend.  Mine was nice.  Quiet.  Enjoyable.  Beady.  I did decide to try something new.  I made homemade spaghetti sauce.  Yea, sounds like it would be AMAZING.  Well, it would have been if I had picked a better recipe!  I really should have read the comments.  But I was overwhelmed with the idea that homemade sauce would be AMAZING that I jumped into the shallow end of the pool without looking first!  Blek!  Don't get me wrong, it was good.  But I had to do a ton of doctoring.  

Also this weekend I did a lot of beading.  I got my inchie done.  Over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Dinosaur.  So many ways to go with that theme but I decided to go with a long gone evidence of the existence of dinosaurs.  Their footprints!


I used 2 colors of Delicas and tried to make these look like 2 different types to dino tracks.

Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Copper.  I used to dislike the copper color.  I am a total silver girl.  But maybe now that I am getting older I am liking it a bit more.  But I had trouble figuring out what to do for this one.  So I went with the periodic table.  Did you know that copper is number 29 on the table and has 29 protons.  I know this because wikipedia told me!  LOL  So here is my twinchie.  The Cu stands for Cuprum (which stands for copper in Latin)


Still taking care of my little dog, he is getting his ability to walk back and that is awesome.  I can't wait for him to be back to normal.  Will also have many more weeks of PT 3x a week!  I already need a nap.  LOL

Also, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the great works, and join in, I would love to see what you come up with!

Have a blessed and creative week my friends.

  3. How creative to think of doing dinosaur tracks! Great idea for the copper one as well. 40 years ago, I gave a friend the directions as to how I made my spaghetti sauce. She told me recently that she still uses that very same recipe! Me? I buy it from the jar LOL!

  5. Great minds think alike, don't they? Great ideas! Hope you and all feel better quickly. And as for spaghetti sauce, sometimes it's whatever's handy. My daughter wants to learn to cook and it's on her list. She may be surprised to find out what really goes in that pot! C
